Project Gem

After the wet fart that was the Essential Phone, Andy Rubin is back with Project Gem (via Gizmodo):

Essential - Project Gem

This looks very interesting and appealing in all the ways Microsoft's recently announced, dual-screen, not-meant-for-your-pocket Surface Duo isn't.

The questions are: A) Will it launch? and B) Will it gain traction?

As much as I shit on the Essential Phone, I'm honestly interested to see how baked Project Gem is.
